Phad Thai

What you need: 

6-8 ounces rice noodles
peanut oil, or other high heat oil, as needed
1 pound firm tofu, diced
1/2 cup peanuts, chopped or crushed
1 onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 green chili, de-seeded and chopped
1" piece fresh ginger, grated
1 red bell pepper, sliced finely
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
4-6 scallions, sliced
1 cup bean sprouts
1-2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped, divided
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 limes, juiced
1 tablespoon brown sugar

What you do: 

1. Bring some water to a boil and add the noodles; cook for 5-10 minutes until soft. Drain. Meanwhile, fry the tofu in a wok or a saute pan until golden; set aside.
2. If you were able to find raw peanuts then lightly toast them until they just start to brown. Next, saute the onion, garlic, chili, ginger, and bell pepper for 2-3 minutes.
3. When the onion is soft, pour in the peanut butter and mix well. Then add the noodles and stir them in. Add the cooked tofu, scallions, bean sprouts, and 1/2 the cilantro. Heat through, stirring.
4. In a bowl, mix together the soy sauce, lime juice and sugar. Pour over the noodles and stir to blend in the sauce. Scatter the peanuts and remaining cilantro on top before serving.

This was really good. I prefer a little bit less peanut butter. My bf loves it

Really good!  Next time I will mix the peanut butter with the other sauce ingredients instead of cooking the peanut butter first.  Everything just got too sticky.  Other than that, so good, the flavors were spot on IMO.  I added a lot of extra cilantro.  Oh, and this makes A LOT, so use a really big pan.  I didn't use one that was quite big enough.  Thanks for a great recipe!  I will be making this again for sure. 


Tasty! I didn't have sprouts, onion or peanuts but it was still good.... but next time I won't do without those, especially the peanuts!


Yum, this looks so nice! I'm going to see if I have everything to make it...


I made this last night and it was delicious!! Great flavours and really easy to make  :>
